Through half open lids

So much for getting a real post out.
Yesterday was gymnastics day. Kaitlyn was so excited to go and Ethan hated every moment.
I have a feeling he might be dropping out for another season.
We had to get up early to be there for the 9:30 am class. I really hoped that this would help with our late nights with Kaitlyn.
Nope. Last night was another midnight struggle. 
If she sleeps in she is up till midnight. If we get her up early she has a crash nap in the afternoon and is up till midnight.
I really hope we can get back on track here soon because this is crazy!

I know that Dave and I were both ones to push bedtimes too and not sleep well and have always been night owls but this is just too late!

Anyway, this is why my posts have been slacking off lately, I am just kinda crashing here and have not been able to stay awake to post.
I am going to try another strategy today so I might make it on later with my real post.
Here's hoping and praying.

Oh and here is that painting I added too.

Click on it to see all the little details larger.
I think it is finally done.
I am so afraid of adding too much.
What do you think?
Oh and thanks for the great ideas!

On another note I really want to say 'hi' to a few of my 'Anon' commenter's.
Hi, Brooke, my gosh it has been forever, it is so nice to hear from you!
Hi Erin, I will totally check out that book, thanks!
Hi Catherine, I love your comments, you are so sweet, miss you!
I think that I talk to the rest of you in real life or have your e-mail addresses, so don't feel left out, I love hearing from you!

So sorry to hear that you are having such a hard time with Kaitlyn. Hope things start going better soon.

The painting I LOVE! LOVE! You did a great job. Beautiful.

And I love the buttons on your shirt. Super cute!

Hoping you get lots of sleep tonight!

hmmm wonder how else you can wear that girl out....

I liked the painting without the additions, so the additions are just like a little more icing on the cake, very yummy!

Where do you find all your cute clothes? Oh and how do I get your figure?? Oh forget it, I just don't have that DNA. ; )

The painting is precious!

Here's hoping miss Kaitlyn heads to bed early tonight...

Oh, I hope you do find a good schedule and pattern. That is tough when sleep patterns get wonky.

Love the flower!
